Time for some very exciting news – Karen Walker has collaborated with Japanese mega-retailer UNIQLO on a childrenswear collection! Dubbed ‘KW2 by KAREN WALKER’, the one-season collection will be available in UNIQLO’s 262 premier stores around the world.
The concept behind the collection is child geniuses and features Karen Walker’s signature alphabet prints mixed with new, hand-illustrated, biro-on-maths-paper florals.
Karen Walker says, “We drew inspiration from the look of Karen Walker collections and with a little help from my five year old, Valentina, we picked out some of our beloved signature styles such as frill hem sweatshirt dresses and boat pants and restyled them for kids. We then added plenty of fun new prints including super-cute maths grid biro doodles of flowers, a trumpet and of course, the Karen walker bunny.”
Comprised of 18 pieces of mix-and-match styles including dresses, tops, pants and skirts for girls aged 5-13 (Asia) and 3-11 (U.S.A. and Europe), the collection uses high-quality fabrics that are kid-friendly and available for a great price.
In addition to the childrenswear line, Karen Walker has also created a range of women’s t-shirts for UNIQLO. The range features eight charming prints in classic KAREN WALKER shapes and will sit alongside the kids’ styles, with both lines available exclusively through UNIQLO from April 2013.
